11.11.11


11th day of 11th month at 11 am GMT 
Service at little church (8 pews) poems of Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon
Remembering the dead and questioning the follies of those whose decisions lead to countless deaths.

2 mins of silence

History should not be repeated but is/will be as history seems sometimes not to be analyzed or known

Anthem for Doomed Youth

What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?
      — Only the monstrous anger of the guns.
      Only the stuttering rifles' rapid rattle
Can patter out their hasty orisons.
No mockeries now for them; no prayers nor bells; 
      Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs,—
The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells;
      And bugles calling for them from sad shires.

What candles may be held to speed them all?
      Not in the hands of boys, but in their eyes
Shall shine the holy glimmers of goodbyes.
      The pallor of girls' brows shall be their pall;
Their flowers the tenderness of patient minds,
     And each slow dusk a drawing-down of blinds.












Lovely project by Danny Boyle
